Breaking off big run after big run, Tyus Early was unstoppable as the Haynesville Golden Tornado ripped past Mangham in the 1A state championship game in early December.
"I felt very comfortable," said Early. "I wouldn't have been able to get those big runs if it wasn't for our great coaching staff and my great line."
Early played in the Tors state title game last year were they fell short and said he did not want to have those same feelings this time around.
"It felt like a regular normal game from last year. We were all excited and we were new to the lights but this year it felt like a regular home game and we came to finish business."
The senior running back certainly did finish business. He scored two touchdowns and rushed for 127 yards as Haynesville captured an impressive 16th state title.
